Speaking of charred remnants from a forgotten past, remember all those old friends we once had? Boy those were the days huh? It is incredible to me how quickly things can just vanish when it comes to friendships. I never had that many close friendships, but the few that I did have for the most part are completely disintegrated. Not to say they can never be repaired or strengthened, life just has a way of getting in the way. People grow up and shit happens. There is really no further explanation then that in most cases. But I find it difficult to comprehend why friendships seem to spiral into disrespect and hatred in a very short amount of time. And I think at least in my case I have come to several conclusions. First of all, fuck it. My mother taught me long ago that some, (and I could tell she was being generous by saying "some.) Some people are just complete fucking piles of shit, and there is nothing that anyone can do to change that. So you will rarely find me loosing sleep over someone being a turd-train to me. But I also see how my apathy towards people can be taken as a dismissal. Which I think if we grow close enough, anyone can see that I at least try to be a decent person and try not to shit on too many people. So I am always astounded when the shit gets shoveled, no plowed onto me until I am buried up to my neck in other people's bullshit. But I see what the problem is from my side. Nietzsche once wrote "It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages." Well I believe it is not a lack of closeness, but a lack of empathy that makes unhappy friendships. No one can relate to anyone else's problems anymore. I see so little character in people these days. Just faceless, narcissistic parasites leeching off one another till there is nothing left. I have just been thinking about the virtues of empathy a lot lately, and when I try to relate to people who have done me wrong, I find it difficult to imagine that they are doing the same. But in the words of Slipknot, "Fuck it all, fuck this world, fuck everything that you stand for." Maggots for life. God Hates Us All.
